  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I have 3 of these, mostly because of this video. :lol:
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Greetings, Earthlings. Pics are coming. As many of you know, I bought a Marshall Origin 50 head and paired it with a Marshall 1936 2x12 cab (one of the older Brit ones) stuffed with G12T-75 speakers. This weekend, I did a bit more horse-trading, trying to regroup around a smaller, more...
  3. General Music Discussion
    So, all artist, album, song names and years/dates are masked... Each "winner" gets to post another album/live review and so on! I start with this one, it's a live review: Halfway between a rock show and an all-out bar fight, ********** brought his band to the **** last ****** night for a set...
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Seeing as there's a few people building pedals on here, I thought it might be an idea to post all results/reviews in one thread for people to see, and it'd be nice to do it in a format: Pedal Name: Supplier: Full kit (y/n): Kit contents (if a kit): Component Quality (out of 10): Difficulty...

    The Body shape has grown on me and I dont find it fugly anymore, in fact find it kinda fascinating, only thing ugly now its the price :D
  6. Music: Recording Studio
    I've had 2x Radial J48 for a couple of years, mainly for capturing guitars on live shows, but the Palmer active is without a doubt a massive bang for the buck. I would say tho, that the Radial seems to have a more "pristine" sound quality, more highs, while the Palmer seems a little darker. But...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Reached out to Arnold at Arnold Plays Guitars a couple of months ago, I really liked his unbiased review videos, and sent him a set of my Obsidian model pickups, which are based on my modern wind, with ceramic bar magnets and Alnico V poles on the inner coils. Here's the video: The demo track...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I just got mine and tossed them into my Honduran Mahogany Blackmachine B7 and also my ViK Duality 7 with Maple top over Limba. I wanted to be the first to write an honest review and then see if others agree or disagree with me after they review theirs. Id really like to know if my ears are...
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I finally got the package from Floyd Rose and oh yeah!!! The push-in arm with Gotoh Floyd-style hex tension screw is fucking brilliant. I have had Original Floyd Rose for 5 years and I've always had to lock the thumbwheel down several times when I play. And with years it has gotten worse and...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    We need more Reviewers like Nathan This is a very old video but I just saw it now and laughed all way through :D
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well, my Caline 10 band EQ showed up. The faders seem kind of flimsy on it. Sound wise it sounds great. I wouldn't recommend this one though. The MXR 10 band seems like the way to go, or on a budget perhaps the Joyo 6 band. It'll have to hold me over until I can put together a small rack setup.
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I have never tried the VHII before I got it in my aristides, but im glad I got it. It sounds great for leads and is awesome for cleans. It doesn't get too dark for cleans and is super clear for leads. It does pretty well for low gain too.
  13. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I had some in my Xiphos about 3 years ago, and remember liking it quite a bit, but then I was playing quite techy/thrashy death metal sort of stuff back then... Anyway, Boots kindly threw one my way for me to try out in my new Charvel for shits and giggles, as I just fancied a little change...
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Honestly even after the honeymoon phase it is still great. 4 months later and I still get excited to play it. If I wasnt getting married im pretty sure I would order another one.
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Just received my Joyo Noise Gate. Does what I wanted it to. Get some static/noise when I boost my JSX on the Crunch or Ultra channels. It cut's it out completely, without messing with the base tone. You'll have to excuse the sloppy playing, I had a long day. The noise is louder in the room...
  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I got a nice deal on this one, so I got it. I like it. It is easy to use and works pretty well. I mainly did this review because I didnt like the others on youtube.
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    :nope: Your one other post got deleted for not following the rules as well.
  18. General Music Discussion
    Tried a set of them, and I like them. Yes I know everyone has the strings they like to use, but for me these feel good and sound good. They are sorta like daddarios but they sound better IMO. I also like that their default sets of strings have a pretty decent 7th string.
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Been a while since I did a pickup video. I've actually been sitting on this one for a long-ass time now, I haven't even had this guitar OR this pickup for about 4 months at least :lol: And here's a link to a brief review, plus the download link for the DI's and backing track, if you care to...
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Just a basic review for anyone that might be interested in new speakers (or probably the 4-5 silent googlers that will find this looking for reviews haha), I've experimented a lot so this is all from my personal experience. The winners so far are the combination of 2x Celestions "Hot 100"...
